Taking Wing

So the theme right now is taking a page from Abigail's book and doing my best to :

(Abigail's Album cover - Art Journal page 2007)

Take Wing.

Witnessing this :


(The return of the Snow Birds - photos taken at Canadian Border, March 20, 2009 - 1st day of Spring !)

Creating this :

Reading and wholeheartedly recommending this :

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

And this :

Creative Awakenings: Envisioning the Life of Your Dreams Through Art by Sheri Gaynor

Letting fly a wish to win this cool Allen Designs giveaway at michelle ma belle, a great new blog I have discovered thanks to my friend carolyn.

Doing all I can to shake of the dusty cloak of winter, and use my wings to fly in the Spring sunshine !

How are you using your wings ?

I love that bird formation Kim!! And I loved "The Time Traveller's Wife"...I want to check the links you shared...

What have I done to use my wings lately?!? Not enough - I still have too much of that dusty cloak of winter (what wonderful word description!!) and it's been bothering me the last few days -- I need a big shower -- and the rain today might just do that. Now to go and think about how I can use my wings!!!

Spring! We still have feet of snow here.

Time Travelers Wife. Oh, I LOVE that book. I've read it three times and it still amazes me. So brilliant!

I have seen the snow geese at Chincoteague Island, and they're nothing short of a miracle. Watching them spiral down is breath taking. Love the "Time Traveler's Wife" and have often reread it. I've also got that new art book you're showing (can't remember the title! and I can't see it!)..welcome home!
